871 Partiality or Love - James 2-8-9-1

• 5 min

Could your partiality masquerade as love? James 2:8-9 "If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, "You shall lvoe your neighbor as yourself," you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors." (ESV) What we call love actually might be partiality in disguise. To fully integrate our faith and work, we must let God test our motives for everything we do. We think if we show favor to someone, we are demonstrating love. James states very clearly that if we show partiality to someone based on how we judge them, especially regarding their wealth, we violate the law. Partiality becomes a cheap substitute for love. How can you tell? Well, do you show favoritism to people who can't pay you back? It's easy to love the good customers. What about the problem ones? We've all seen examples of people trying to look good to the people at the top of the org chart. What about people further down the org chart? Will you let God show you how to bring your faith to work? Where does he want it to show up today? Simply asking is the first step, but also listen for the answer. Then act. If you are given answers by God but you don't take action, after a while, you won't be able to hear his voice. Or he will change the message. Today, ask God to help you treat your work as ministry. Life doesn't have to be compartments. You can combine your faith and work. Practice our 5 Daily Habits, Pray, Appreciate Others, Know what you believe, Serve Others and Speak for Yourself and you will find that your faith and joy show up at work all the time! Also, remember this podcast is designed to challenge you. Take the challenge. Ask God to show you where you can improve and begin the process. Subscribe to this podcast and share it with others so you can integrate your faith and work daily!
